Is there anything better than fish and chips from the local takeaway shop on a warm summer’s night?
We’re just gonna go ahead and say, no. And with that grand sweeping statement out there in the balmy summer air, here’s some of the best joints to pick your’s up over the coming months:
Grand Lane Fish House
Tucked away on Grand Lane behind Barrack Street in the city, this might just be Perth’s best fish and chip joint. Their fish tacos are huge, and everything is super-well priced. Irresistible city lunch spot.
135 Barrack Street, Perth
Woodlands Fish & Chips
What they lack in pizzazz Woodlands Fish and Chips more than make up for it with flavour and serving size. Always well-staffed with friendly faces to handle even the busiest nights, it’s a western suburbs fave for a reason.
Rosewood Avenue, Woodlands
Eureka Fish & Chips
One of Perth’s premier fish and chippys in the 80s, Eureka Fish & Chips was revived in 2018 much to the delight of loyal customers from over the decades. They’ve got a huge menu with some competitive prices, and the batter is always light and crispy without making you feel like you’re gonna sink to Davey Jones Locker afterwards. Plus if you do want to be a little naughty, they sling a naughty deep fried mars or snickers bar as well.
16 Eureka Road, Wilson
Clancy’s Fish Pub
Across all three locations in Freo, City Beach and Canning Bridge (and Dunsborough for our down south folk), Clancy’s have been keeping families well fed and watered for years. Freo and City Beach are great to take the kids, and there’s something happening every night of the week.
903 Canning Highway, Applecross
195 Challenger Parade, City Beach
51 Cantonment Street, Fremantle
Rodney’s Bait n Tackle
While we are sad to report you can’t grab Rodney’s Bait n Tackle‘s fish and chips to takeaway, that’s all the more reason to dive into one of our fave neighbourhood bars for a feed! The decor, the vibe, the drinks… It’s a winner all fronts, not least their superb fish and chips – $25 if you pop in on a Wednesday night.
598 Stirling Highway, Mosman Park
The British Chippy
Given Perth’s strong ex-pat contingent, it’s no wonder The British Chippy is the favourite of many of our northern suburbs friends. They’ve got a few interesting options (battered burger, haggis anyone?) that’ll keep you coming, but its their commitment to the traditional British fish and chip that keeps ’em coming back.
Lukin Centre, 2 Captiva Approach, Butler
Currambine Central, 1244 Marmion Avenue, Currambine
151 The Promenade, Ellenbrook
West Deck, Karrinyup Shopping Centre, Karrinyup
The pride and joy of Spearwood, owner Jason knows his way around a fish and chip or two. Friendly local service combined with massive portions are worth driving for, and who can’t resist a little deep fried fetta cheese? It’s time you gogo to Fishagogo!
3/73 Phoenix Road, Spearwood
Brighton Fish Supply
Mario & Phylis have been serving up quality local produce for three decades (!), with the man himself preparing the fish every day. Reasonably priced with plenty of extras, Brighton Fish Supply‘s selection is unreal.
22A Muriel Avenue, Innaloo
Moolanda Fish & Chips
The key to a top fish and chip joint is the serving size, and Moolanda out in Kingsley are the kings of big portions. Even though it gets crazy busy in there you’ll always be served with a smile, and it won’t cost you an arm and a fin.
Shop 4/127 Moolanda Boulevard, Kingsley
You can find Fish Boss in their excellent Vic Park and Inglewood stores, and we recommend you get there stat. Their staples are killer, but it’s their second-to-none fish tacos that’ll blow your mind, along with an expansive range of super delicious but also healthy options.
789 Albany Highway, East Victoria Park
2/882 Beaufort Street, Inglewood
Don’t let Swannies‘ distance from the ocean turn you off, they’ve got some of the best hookups to the freshest fish in Perth, and treat it with the respect it deserves. Do yourself a favour and grab yourself some of their famous dhufish bites – the popcorn chicken of the sea!
2/21 Dance Drive, Middle Swan
The Jolly Fryer
Another shop not to be judged by how far away the sea is, the excellent pricing is matched only by The Jolly Fryer‘s extensive range of fish. If you’re feeling a little extra naughty – make sure you grab yourself a tub of their special curry sauce – an absolute winner.
22 Haynes Street, Kalamunda
This Cottesloe institution opened up a new joint in Elizabeth Quay a couple of years back, and it’s not surprising given the no doubt thousands of Indian Ocean sunsets they’ve enhanced over the years.
28/94 Marine Parade, Cottesloe
25 Geoffrey Bolton Avenue, Perth
Mosman Park Seafoods
Right in the heart of Mossie Park, Mosman Park Seafoods does good, honest fish and chips just right. Decently priced, their grilled options are delish, and always ready to eat super quick. Ask anyone who lives in the area, Mosman Park Seafoods never fails to disappoint!
46 Manning Street, Mosman Park
Bringing a love of fresh local produce up from the south coast of WA, Tankk owners Paul and Anna have spread the love with stores in Como, Melville and Churchlands to go with their Winthrop flagship. Their online ordering system is super handy, and the ice-cream sandwiches are next level.
6/262 Canning Highway, Como
Shop 29/380 Canning Highway, Bicton
5 Flynn Street, Churchlands
Shop 14 Hatherley Parade, Winthrop
Piscari Fish And Chips
Piscari on Hampton Rd in Fremantle is another top shelf takeway fish and chip joint. With over 20 years experience, they’ve tightened their menu up to perfection, with a nice mix of Aussie and NZ fish.
99B Hampden Road, Fremantle
Redfish in Attadale is the perfect stop for those looking for a bit of dining out action. It’s a little more expensive than your average shop, but worth it for the locally and ethically sourced produce, diverse and delicious menu and variety of different specials each night.
88D Moreing Rd, Attadale
Mount Pleasant Fish And Chips
One of the most popular South Perth seafood slingers, Mt Pleasant Fish And Chips gets pretty busy but is always worth the wait.
87 Glenelg St, Mount Pleasant
Santorini Fish And Chips
Santorini Fish And Chips have been getting the job done for over 25 years, and with a base level fish and chips only $12.50, it’s not hard to see why. A nice variety of vego options are also available across their three stores.
23/148 Scarborough Beach Road, Mount Hawthorn
2/467 Guildford Road, Bayswater
22F/20 Strelitzia Avenue, Forrestfield
Oh My Cod
With stores in both Tuart Hill and Mount Lawley, we’re happy for any excuse to hit up Oh My Cod for some OMG-worthy fish and chips. Their WA fish is coated in a super light and crispy batter, while Pemberton-grown spuds make Oh My Cod’s chips extra tasty. On a cold winter’s night, you’ve got to dive into a comforting bowl of their moqueca, a Brazilian seafood stew.
73 Royal Street, Tuart Hill
649C Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley
John’s Food & Liquor
We would never want to make light of what was probably a very traumatic incident… But when it comes to John’s Food & Liquor, people will certainly go to great lengths to get their hands on their chips. We can’t think of a more vigorous an endorsement than that, but this chippy has been building a reputation for some of Perth’s best traditional fish and chips for years.
144 Bennett Street, East Perth
